If there’s a buck to be made…

The Editor,


It seems pretty rich for Chelsea Council to condemn anyone for adding to urban sprawl and for them to express concerns about local creeks. Chelsea is always wide-open for business: it’s never seemed to have qualms about allowing wetlands to be taken over by ugly sprawl and it’s issued building permits for shoreline and bush property in Gatineau Park. If there's a buck to be made in assessment, Chelsea's Council has always eagerly snatched that money.
